RAIATEA - The Sacred Island
Take a guided tour of Mount Temehani to see the Tiare Apetahi which is a rare, white, delicate flower that only blooms at dawn and can be found nowhere else on earth. You can charter a sail boat and explore the numerous marinas, moorings and bays or go scuba diving at a variety of sites where you will find various caverns, drop-offs and shipwrecks to explore along with coral gardens. The best place for shopping is in Utoroa along the waterfront where local artists display their crafts, art and collectibles.
